In combat, would a npc with out a weapon fight like a zombie? If it did, then creepers would not be a threat unless you are by yourself. Skeletons would quickly become a greater threat because they could just pick off colonists with out taking damage.
Regular colonists would have bow and arrow and would keep away. Soldiers would have both sword and bow and arrow, and would fire arrows as they close to melee attack. Rudimentary AI would also be nice, having them run back into town when very wounded.
If everyone had a bow, then all hostile mobs besides skeletons are pointless. This would also make the soldier's sword useless. It would make more sense if no one had a weapon at all, except soldiers. However, maybe if the town was under attack, the y could all get a sword from the blacksmith?
